Bringing Beauty to Your Yard

Do you genuinely long for a beautiful yard?  A yard that’s an absolute showplace?  A yard where your family and friends are awestruck every time they visit?  Just imagine getting up each morning and seeing a naturally beautiful and vibrant pond and waterfall out your window.  Wouldn’t that be a great way to start off your day?  If you want your backyard to have the “wow” factor, then you’re reading the right article.

If you’ve never seen a water garden before please don’t presume that you know what I am talking about.  I am not talking about one of those pea-green cesspools that take you hours to maintain.  No, I am talking about a living ecological entity, a sparkling, clear, freshwater pond with fish, turtles, tadpoles, frogs, blooming flowers and a magnificent waterfall.  These ponds are alive, overflowing with life, and they take very little time to maintain.  You don’t even have to feed the fish, but you’ll want to.

Hurth Waterscapes, Wisconsin’s leading experts on ecological water gardens, is selling hundreds of these ponds to customers who want relief from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.  Doug Hurth, owner of Hurth Waterscapes says “we’re not just building ponds…we’re changing lifestyles.  People love water gardens because they are tranquil, relaxing, and beautiful and they attract a multitude of wildlife.  In this day and age of computers, cell phones, deadlines and spreadsheets we are constantly bombarded with information.   It is great to have your own special paradise that allows you to get away from it all and relax”.

All of Hurth Waterscapes water gardens are designed to be very low maintenance and are backed by a ten-year warranty.  All that you should need to do to maintain your pond is occasionally clean leaves and debris from the intake and add bacteria and enzymes as needed.  The fall and spring of the year are the toughest.  At these times there is a bit more work, with the falling leaves and the spring clean up very similar to the attention that a typical flower garden requires.

Each year, 40% of our work consists of rebuilding ponds that were built incorrectly by other companies.  If you are considering having a pond professionally installed, there are a few questions that you should ask your installer; are they insured?  Do they have photos and customer testimonials?   How many ponds have they installed?  Are they a certified pond contractor?  Do they have a warranty?  Do they provide maintenance?  Do they have a pond at their home?  All of these questions are important, but probably the most important question of all is; can we go see a few of the ponds that you have installed?  A reputable pond builder should have plenty of beautiful ponds for you to look at.  Remember, most landscape companies specialize in designing, planting and maintaining grass, flower beds, trees and shrubs, not ponds!  There are quite a few landscape companies that build a few ponds, realize that they are a bit more difficult to install correctly than they thought and then never build another one.  What good is a pond if it cannot be properly maintained and has no warranty?  Why not call someone who specializes in ponds?  We understand that a water garden is a sizeable investment, which is why we offer our standard ten-year warranty on our workmanship and honor all manufacturers’ warranties.  We want you to be confident and proud of your new pond, so that you can tell all of your friends and family about it.
